Noteworthy Activity #424C
Meet & Greet and Discussion With Peter Gerhardt
Monday, May 31, 2021
1:00 PM–2:00 PM
Online
 
PETER F. GERHARDT (The EPIC School)
 

Obtaining instructional or stimulus control with young learners on the autism spectrum is critically important, just as it is with learners without any disability label. And just as it is with adolescents and adults without any disability label, the “source” of instructional or stimulus control needs, to the greatest extent possible, to transfer from the behavior analyst to the individual and his or her environment. This session will provide a brief overview of this issue followed by the opportunity for discussion with those in attendance. Topics associated with this “transfer of control” include, but are not limited to, behavior analytic intervention, instruction, or support in areas such as:

  • Personal safety
  • Healthcare transition
  • Sexuality
  • Self-management
  • Social inclusion
  • Leisure
  • Advocacy
